Geocache Description:


Number 93 in a series of caches where a red telephone box is in close proximity to a post box.


The only rules are that they have to be able to be photographed together, be not more than 100’ apart and the phone boxes have to be red.



Despite its small size, Chinley has many shops and amenities including a post office, an Indian restaurant, a pharmacy, a grocer's shop, a butcher, cafes, and an old fashioned 'chippy'. The village is surrounded by the local hills, Chinley Churn/Cracken Edge, South Head and Eccles Pike which offer great local walks and attract many tourists in the summer months. 

The phone box here is one of many across the country that has been re-purposed as a defibrillator station. It is also another resurrected fine pair, the original cache was placed by Meadowmary (in a different place). We never managed to look for this before it was archived, but as it's a lovely example of the series I thought it deserved another shot. This is my second attempt at resurrecting this cache - so I hope it lasts this time! GZ can be quite a popular place with walkers, so do keep an eye out when retrieving and replacing. 

The cache is not hidden at the posted coordinates, which are for the post box. Please visit to get the following information to calculate the final location:

The last collection from the post box on Monday-Friday is A.BC pm

The last Saturday collection is DE.FG am

The cache can be found at:                    N53 20.(A+B)(C)(D)

                                                            W001 56.(A)(B+D+E)(C)

The cache can be found about a 5-10min (steep uphill!) walk away. I have included a waypoint to help you find the correct path. It can be muddy at times, walking boots are recommended. At GZ you should have a good view of the village and just about be able to make out where you were stood a few moments ago. We hope you enjoy the views and the climb was worth it!
